Ashlee Lloyd is a young industrial/lighting designer,

 

conceptualist, textile lover and lighting fanatic based

 

in Cape Town, South Africa. Simultaneously inspired

 

by the rich culture of craft in Southern Africa and the

 

complex forms found in nature, her aim is to create

 

functional pieces that engage ones emotions and

 

senses. Each piece is delicately handcrafted with

 

patience and attention to detail to create a tactile

 

experience.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

She allows each piece to form organically,

 

combining contrasting materials such as synthetic

 

rope, yarns, raffia grass and recycled t-yarn. She

 

conceptualizes solutions for interior spaces

 

incorporating traditional decorative techniques such

 

as crochet and modern energy saving lighting

 

methods. Her approach is at once artistic, tangible,

 

functional and unique. Her artistic vision is propelled

 

by her desire for creation.
